The Tenth Internalional Congress of Applied Mechanics will be held in the Congress Building at Stresa (Italy) from Wednesday, 31 August until Wednesday, 7 September, 1960. Apart from a number of invited general lectures the technical be held in two sections, viz. : Section

1

:

Fluid dynamics

(hydrodynamics

Section

2

:

Mechanics of solids (rigid body dynamics, and theory of structures).

sessions of the Congress will

and aerodynamics). vibrations,

elasticity,

plasticity

It should be noted that thermodynamics and computational methods as such are not included, although specific applications of computational methods to pertinent problems of one of the two sections mentioned above are acceptable subjects for papers to be read at the Tenth Congress. Previous Congresses have demonstrated the desirability of an adequate period of time for the presentation and discussion of individual papers. In order to allow a period of 45 minutes for each paper (30 min. for presentation and 15 min. for discussion) a Programme Committee will make a selection from papers submitted for presentation. Abstracts of papers should be submitted in four copies to the Secretary of the International Committee (Prof. Mekelweg 2, Delft, Netherlands) before 1 January, 1960. Preferably they should not exceed two typewritten pages (doubly-spaced) and in no case should they exceed four pages. In order to facilitate the work of the Programme Committee it is recommended that abstracts be in two of the official Congress languages (English, French, German and Italian). Authors are urged to make their abstracts as clear as possible, since selection of papers has to be based upon them. Decisions of the Programme Committee are final, and it will be understood that it is impossible to enter into correspondence about them with authors of papers. They will be informed promptly of the decision on each paper. Day-to-day organization of the Congress is effected by the Italian Organizing Committee (President : Prof. G. Colonnetti ; Secretary : Dr. F. Rolla, Consiglio Nazionale delle Ricerche, Ufjicio relazioni internazionali, Piazza delle Scienza 7, Roma). All correspondence (apart from submission of papers) should be addressed to the Italian Organizing Committee. Information on accommodation, also registration forms, will be obtainable from Dr. Rolla on and after 1 September, 1959. The Executive Committee of the International Committee for the Congresses of Applied Mechanics C. B. Biezeno, President Richard V. Southwell W. T. Koiter, Secretary (l’rof. Mekelweg 2-Delft)
